All eight "Harry Potter" movies are heading to HBO, and this is truly magical
Here’s something truly magical: All eight — YES, ALL EIGHT — Harry Potter movies are heading to HBO!
Mark your calendar for January 1st, 2018, because that’s when you’ll be able to watch the OG Harry Potter films on HBO. (So like, we’re all making that our New Year’s resolution, right?) Better yet, you can watch the movies commercial-free.
Now, as much as we’ve loved the many Harry Potter marathons to #bless our TVs over the years, it’s so nice to know that we won’t have to take break after break just when we’re really getting into the drama and wondering if Harry will in fact defeat Voldemort (like we don’t already know).
The OG films join HP prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is already available on HBO. All together, this marks the first time all nine magical, whimsical films will be available to watch on a single network, unedited, and commercial-free. And this is the kind of history (of magic) we love to hear about.
If you’re more the streaming type, you can watch all nine films on HBO Go and HBO Now, or there’s HBO On Demand and its affiliates.
To get things rolling, HBO is throwing a kickoff marathon on New Year’s Day 2018.
That’ll start at 9 a.m. and end with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the wee hours the next day. After that, HBO Family will air one film at 8 p.m. each night, beginning on January 2nd.
- Tuesday, January 2nd — Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
- Wednesday, January 3rd — Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
- Thursday, January 4th — Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- Friday, January 5th — Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Here’s the thing: The way we see it, we can never have enough Potter in our lives. So thank you, HBO, for indulging our forever obsession.
